Elk Trek

This weekend we went to the Tule Elk Reserve at Point Reyes National Seashore. Wes slept the whole way there and home and had a nice time on the hike. It was quite foggy but cleared up some on the hike back. Wes was a little concerned that he could hear the ocean so clearly but could not see it (because of the wall of fog). He kept pointing, sort of worried, saying "dat" (that). The fog was rolling over us, but it wasn't too chilly.

We walked for a couple hours and saw three herds of elk. I think this was the first time I'd ever seen Tule Elk. The Point Reyes Elk Reserve is the largest population of Tule Elk in California and has significantly helped increase the overall number of remaining Elk.

I was happy to see the coast and to have such a successful family adventure.
